Hey there, This may be my first post on BHW but I have been here for awhile. Recently I have been coming across a few posts claiming that people have been hacked and their pp funds stolen. We all know that pp won't do shit if you lose money from funds (if they take it from a credit card then your cc company can step in) Here are my tips for securing your account on paypal. The first 1-2 are common knowledge. 1. Use a password that is alphanumerical and is longer than 8 characters. 2. Attach a security pin/code to your paypal account. 3. Do not make your secret questions obvious eg. Where was your mother born? You could even swaps the answers around for the 2 secret questions, so answer 1 would actually be the answer to question 2 and vice versa. 4. VERY IMPORTANT - NEVER USE HOTMAIL ACCOUNTS FOR PAYPAL!! I can't stress this enough, hotmail is incredibly easy to hack, trust me, I use to do it (not stealing paypal or doing anything like that) just simply to test securuity on my friends account with his permission. I suggest using gmail as it much harder to break into their accounts. 5. Do not use the same password for both your email and paypal account, if someone happens to keylog you or guess your password (unlikely) then their next step would be to try that password on your paypal account (if they found out you had one). Do not even give them that chance! People who have hotmail accounts attached to their paypal account can't understand how they got hacked when their virus scan shows up with 0 infections/keyloggers. This is because viruses are not needed. I will not reveal how to break into accounts because it is illegal (obviously) Take the appropriate procautions when setting up your paypal account to ensure that you do not lose your hard-earned cash. Stay safe. Matt.
